Veterinary Science Research

The Institute of Veterinary Science has one of the widest-ranging research programmes in the UK, covering both fundamental and clinical research, and this is currently divided into eight flexible research groups employing over 70 academic staff. The research groups are integral members of the internationally renowned Health and Life Sciences community, which is based at the University of Liverpool. This opens up countless opportunities for researchers to pursue novel projects in collaboration with an array of specialist centres, including those for Infection and Global Health, Ageing and Chronic Disease, Integrative Biology, and Translational Medicine.

Much of the work is not only interdisciplinary but cross-species as well. Liverpool is, for example, pre-eminent in combined human and animal fields such as zoonosis, microbial resistance to antibiotics, and climate-related epidemiology. Links are also cultivated with the Veterinary Institute's three first-opinion practices, and the two referral hospitals, giving researchers unparalleled access to their facilities, and data.

The Veterinary Institutes's external funding is continually growing, with income from research councils, industry and leading charitable foundations, as well as from the growing business and knowledge exchange services.
